    You've already got the perfect cold air intake on your truck... The stock one! If you get anything, the trd would be the one. But you might get 3-4 hp from it... If that.

    That's the problem with it... It looks sweet and that's it. Most anything you do to the intake part of your truck will most likely result in a loss of low end torque. Any unfortunately that includes a lot of aftermarket cai. You would be better off getting a cat back setup with a straight thru exhaust design. Trust me, or hold my beer, I'd be the first person to buy an aftermarket cai if they worked. Even using an aftermarket afe reusable filter rather than the stock paper on will drop the low end! I know from experience.

    @TruckyTruck I'll take your word for it. I'd rather get the trd exhaust like u have anyway. Was just searching. Does the intake flow accelerator u have help? By the way i ordered Toytec 3.5" adjustables and gonna order coachbuilder +2's for the rear. No blocks! No spacers! Haha

    They do make the engine bay look more badass, not as much as a supercharger *drool*. But just like Truckytruck said, they won't do much good for our trucks.

    Sorry man... I'm being a dream crusher! How much lift are you wanting in the front?

    I don't thing the air accelerator did anything at all... Except the swoosh sound when I step on it is louder. Now the bully dog tuner... That did something!

    I've got 3.25 in the front and +3 shackles. And it's just my opinion, but even with 3 in the front, I'd still have the +3s in the rear. A lot of the time what guys call leveled actually looks nose high to me. But it's only my opinion.

    I think that kit is a great idea though. I like adjustables so you can compensate for any lean the truck might have. My fat bobs are fairly stiff, but I knew that going into them. So I ordered a .25 inch shim from coachbuilder for each side of the coilovers. A .25 inch shim gives half an inch of lift. I did that so I didn't have to pre load the coilovers as much. Not to mention I knew I wanted 3.25 inches in the front. Just an idea for you.

    And that 3 to 4 hp would be at least 3500 rpm+!!! Drop in a K&N to save money on filters. (Properly oiled, no MAF issues. Urban legend. Better than dry filter. )

    I'll look into that. The guy at the shop says alotta guys run the icon build in the front. And i talked to coachbuilder. Maybe I'll check out the +3 so it doesn't look too bull dogged if im towing. Gonna be a few weeks but I'll post pics as soon as my trucks lifted with wheels!

    Afe looks good , accomplishes nothing. Kate Upton looks good too. Prefer looking at her.

    Sean, you need to make it happen. (the OME BP51's that is). At least OME is moving up. I guess ToyTec will report here first when (if) they become available for the Big T.
